In Memory

Carl W. Noll

Carl W. Noll

Carl W. Noll, 77, of Fairfield, began his last great adventure on April 27, 2021. He was the son of Henry and Evelyn Noll of Trumbull. Carl leaves behind his loving wife of 56 years, Noreen White Noll, who was his best friend, partner and rock in times of need. He also leaves behind his beloved sons, Eric, Daryl (Evelyn) and Robert.
Carl is also survived by his brother, Victor Noll (Ellie) of Oxford and his sister Carole Barber (Orrie) of Stratford. He also leaves behind several cousins, nieces and nephews to cherish his memory.
Carl earned his BS in Electrical Engineering in 1965 from UCONN. He later earned his MBA from Sacred Heart University. He worked at Automatic Signal and Norden Systems before retiring from Sikorsky Aircraft in 2011.
He was a tireless advocate for people with different abilities, especially with autism and blindness.
A devout Lutheran, Carl was a lifelong member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church where he served the congregation in many capacities.
A man of many interests, Carl was a student of Civil War history, a member of the Coastal Chordsmen, an ASA umpire, scout master, bowler and avid sports fan. While Carl loved the Cleveland Browns and UCONN Huskies, his true passion was the NY Yankees. He has probably already met "The Mick," Yogi and Whitey and all the pinned-stripped heroes from his youth.
The family wishes to thank all the many kind and compassionate caregivers over the last 3 years.
Friends may call on Friday, April 30th from 5 to 7 p.m. at Larson Funeral Home in Bridgeport. The funeral service will take place at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 406 White Plains Rd., Trumbull at 10 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 406 White Plains Rd., Trumbull, CT 06611, Oak Hill at OakHillCT.org or The Kennedy Center at www.TheKennedyCenterInc.org.

Carl...the "Tiger"...was a smart, happy person to be around. He valued his family and friends and in combinationi with his religious beliefs...enjoyed life and could handle the hardships along the way. I had the pleasure of being his friend from the Middlebrook days, thru Central on even on to Uconn.  We were good friends but on the softball field as a menbor of the Mavericks I wanted to beat his team badly....sometimes we did. He could hit a ball a long way! Talking with him recently, he struggled somewhat, but his friendship was there and I enjoyed the moment. I will miss him.

I am very saddened on the passing of my old friend Carl Noll. Whom-ever wrote his obnituary, did a fine job, as it truely describes and captured his life. Unfortunitly, after his graduation I kind of lost track of him, but the obit filled me in. It did not surprise me- his achievments after graduation. He was indeed a very bright, and cmpassionate person in the early days, and obviously applied these qualities thru his entire life. Fortunitly, I have clear memories of him in those early days and the obit didn't surprise me regarding his life after Central. My sympathies to his family whom I am sure will miss him, I will not forget him either, and I am sure other classmates feel the same way.

I went through school with Carl since our childhood in Trumbull.  I remember him as a sweet and thoughtful person with a smile and kind word for everyone.

Although we were not friends at Cenral, I do remember Carl Noll so we probably shared some classes. We officially met when I joined the Reunion Committee. In fact, that first meeting was at his home where I  officially met him an his wonderful wife. He treated me like we were long time friends.

I am so sad to learn of his recent passing as he was a unique individual who was loved by all. My sincere condolences to his family.

It was my great honor to get to know Carl and Noreen over the years.  Nancy (Pavone) and I dined with them several times and got to a couple of Carl's concerts.  Carl was a fine man and good friend.  His knowledge of the civil war was amazing and impeccable. Another stalwart of the Bridgeport Central Class of 1961. Rest In Peace Carl.  Terry Ryan

I had some interesting nights out to New York with Carl once we turned 18.. Lost touch for a long time but reunited about 7 or 8 years ago when he found me in the Tampa Bay area. He and Noreen spent time here each winter visiting friends from Connecticut. Interesting while we were meeting one time, he realized that his friend growing up was my brother in law (who also lives here)! The two families were very close. Well, we got Noreen, Carl, brother in law and sister in law together.  Before our 70th Birthday reunion, Carl promised me that he would try to make the event (he had his stroke earlier). Sure enough, if you were there, Carl and Noreen attended. A measure of the special couple. Thanks for the memories Carl.
